2017 Northumberland Coastal Run Results

Here are the results from todays Northumberland Coastal Run!!! https://www.resultsbase.net/event/3755/results.

Many thanks to everyone for making the 2017 Northumberland Coastal Run another huge success. Huge thanks must go to the 2 main race organisers Tracey SAMPLE and Jocelyn BOLAM, and to the huge army of Harriers, friends and family who helped over the course of the weekend and in the build up to the race. The committee would also like to thank several organisations who made the race possible including Rothbury Motors, Alnmouth FC, The National Trust, Motorcare Ford Alnwick, Rapid Reaction, the Beadnell Boatclub, Alnmouth Links Golf Club and Hipsburn First School. Finally well done to the runners who braved the rain and, at times, muddy and slippy course. Hope to see you again next year!!

    Can I just pass on my thanks to all the Alnwick Harriers Marshall’s, organisers and others handing out T Shirts etc. You were all really supportive, generous and kind. It was a very well organised race and friendly and cheerful Marshall’s and competitors, especially considering the weather. Please pass on my thanks to all who made this run possible.

    My sixth year and still loving it. Brilliant race and always well organised. Normally sunny too. Great conditions for running this year, but I’m sure the marshalls weren’t thinking the same for marshalling! Thanks for organising, giving up your time and standing in the rain encouraging us. I’ll be back next year!
